Pear Chai Thumbprints



  1. First, make the pear filling by adding the diced pears, hazelnuts, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup Chai concentrate to a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the pears are soft and most of the liquid has cooked out.
  2. Meanwhile, start on the dough by creaming together the butter and remaining brown sugar. Then, beat in the eggs.
  3. Next, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture, alternating with the remaining 1/2 cup Chai concentrate.
  4. Now, use a Crestware Scoop (#3838) to spoon the dough onto a cookie sheet (#4020) lined with a silicone mat (#8436). Roll the dough ball in sugar, then using the round part of the scoop, make an indent in the center of each dough ball and fill with 1/2 tsp of the pear filling.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375F.
